"What if you knew her....."

 

On Friday May 1st, 1970, myself, Allison B. Krause and approximately 20-30 other students were making anti-VietNam war protest signs in Bowman Hall [poli. sci. building] on the Kent State campus. Although on Monday May 4th she was a substantial long distance from the Ohio National Guard unit, their 13 second volley of 67 bullets into a crowd of unarmed students, took the life of Allison Krause.

I knew her.

Another favorite that we sang in high school, and one of the most popular that I recall -

 

San Francisco - Scott McKenzie, written by John Phillips (Mamas & Papas), 1967

 

Wikipedia - "McKenzie's version of the song has been called "the unofficial anthem of the counterculture movement of the 1960s, including the Hippie, Anti-Vietnam War and Flower power movements."
